"

[size=150]The breeding season for wild turkeys
occurs during spring when increasing daylength triggers breeding behavior (gobblingand strutting) in males."
[/size]



That's correct. In the interest of full disclosure one more sentence should be added-
 
Current weather conditions, food availability, and hunting pressure, which all affect turkey behavior, can and will influence breeding behavior. 

Bottom line.


I don't know where you got that but it says nothing of weather where I got my quote from the Wi dnr website.

I know that. I added it because it needs to be there. The big picture of this whole breeding/gobbling/mating topic as it relates to turkey hunters is not as black and white as the single sentence you posted. The other factors I mentioned influence breeding behavior once it has been triggered.

Edit*- OK, going back and reading the last several posts, I can see where you misinterpreted the word disclosure as indicating that you didn't cut and paste the entire statement. That's not the case and Trace stirred the pot a little for you. I'm merely pointing out that for the sake of this entire debate the other factors need to be mentioned.

That is all. No name calling or ruffled feathers required. [;)]

Get mad about what some guys say on the internet? Yeah right. I enjoy these debates much more than everyone agreeing and kissing each other like some forums.
